Opportunity to learn more about the RFU

The RFU are holding a Constituent Body Orientation day at Twickenham Stadium on Thursday 6 October 2016.  As the RNRU is a Constituent Body (CB) of the RFU we have been invited to send RNRU members to attend.  The aim of the day is to provide volunteers with information about the RFU and the support that is available from the executive staff and how CBs can support the aims and objectives of the RFU.  There will also be opportunities for networking and to find out more about leadership support and development pathways. This is the ideal chance for volunteers within Navy Rugby to broaden their understanding of and improve their engagement with the strategies and agenda of the RFU.

The programme for the day is:

10:00    Arrival, refreshments and networking
10:30    Introduction and Housekeeping (Jill Loader, Volunteer Engagement Manager)
10:35    Welcome (Peter Baines, RFU President)
10:45    RFU Business Priorities (Ian Ritchie, RFU Chief Executive Officer)
11:00    The Rugby Landscape
12:00    Refreshment break
12:15    Planning, Funding and Reporting (Simon Winman, Head of Club Development)
12:45    What support is available to you? (Rosie Williams, Head of Club Development)
13:15    Networking lunch
